Andrews became a scapegoat for A's owner Charles Finley after making errors on back-to-back plays in the 12th inning of Game 2 of the 1973 World Series after coming in as a pinch hitter in the 8th inning. Finley attempted to replace Andrews by putting him on the disabled list immediately and activating rookie Manny Trillo , but the move was not allowed by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn , who fined Finley in the process. The A's won the series anyway and Andrews only appeared in one other game in the series (as a pinch hitter). His teammates and fans rallied to Andrews's support during the remainder of the Series, some of them wearing armbands with his number. Manager Williams quit in disgust after winning the Series in seven games. For his part, Andrews never again appeared in a major league game, as after the 1973 season, he went to play in Japan for Kintetsu.
